the best word to use. these voters have been used, either going republican for years or falling out of interest and helping republicans get elected. now they can all organize, they can all get on facebook, they can contact these candidates pretty easily and get revved up and drive up votes in a way they didn't used to. one twhoing point out. it is not just that they're electing tea party nominees instead of the establishment choices, the republicans are who have are not being defeated by the tea party, john mccain, for example, end up agreeing with them on the issues. the tea party has been really good, better than the democratic base, at moving the party in the direct they want. the more conservative direction. >> at this point we might as well add marko rubio and make it six versus five. do you have a sense, did miss angle give us more information than she wanted to by talking about the rhetoric of the primary versus the rhetoric of the general? any sense of who will try move away from the work stream positions to take softer angle, no pun intended? >> sharron angle has been refre

, whether they actually believe there's a moral equivalency there or they don't and they're using it for political purposes. either way, whichever it is, this is not just bad domestic politics for the president, and it is and they know it, for a variety of reasons, including it takes him off the economy and divides him from democrats, which is a big problem on a range of issues, but i almost resist talking about this as a political issue. this is a national security crisis. both of these issues are. you have general petraeus getting involved in a domestic matter of the first amendment issue shows the extraordinary extent to which people in the military are -- men and women overseas think this is a big enough deal, and to have it to be brought into domestic politics and inflamed by republicans, again, out of principle, maybe, out of political purposes maybe, whatever the reason is really a national and international tragedy. and unfortunately the president, for a variety of reasons, is too weak on his own to deal with it. >> i think you're right. howard? >> well, sitting in the pre
so we'll get hit from atlantic side then as it goes past us we'll get more of a west wind and we're going get hit from the sound side. so we could really get a double whammy here on the outer banks when it comes to flooding. as you can see you mentioned the beach, the red flags have goern up, they are urging information stay out of the water. i was here 24 hours ago. surf is definitely higher than it was yesterday. rip current is going to be a big risk. overall, contessa, your mentioned the evacuation, a lot of people asking us, it looks like the i-95 corridor eastbound type of event. >> thank you for keeping us in the loop. let's get to bill karins tracking the path of earl. >> this is going over the top of where stefanie is about 24 to 36 hours from now. it's the time frame of when we watch our reporters blowing in the wind. as far as the storm goes still a category 3. a stloormg. going to have wide impacts up and down the coast. this is not the forecast path for a worst case scenario. that would be right along the coastline with the eye of the storm raking up from north caroli

paul joins us live. >>> and later why pennsylvania's governor is so embarrassed it comes down to this question, how would you feel if you found out government was spying on you, reporting you to local police as a potential threat just because you were taking part in a peaceful protest? it happened in pennsylvania. you won't believe some of the groups that got targeted. environment environmentalists, gays, lesbians, how it happened and who got stuck with the bill. >>> as always keeping them honest with an event that didn't have to happen, the huge egs ploegs in san bruno, california, that incinerated a neighborhood and killed at least four people. we've got new evidence tonight suggesting that this nightmare might have been preventible. the lives lost, the homes destroyed, the explosion and fireball so intense that first responders initially thought a jetliner had crashed. >> we've got multiple houses, we're trying to get close. we have extreme heat. we have possibly several blocks on fire at this time. >> call for fourth alarm for this. looks, it appears we have a plane down i
lothian is joining us. dan? >>> wolf, white house aides say the strategy of going after republicans singling some of them out by name, especially on the issue of tax cuts for the wealthy, is working. but as we found out, some americans have turned off by all of the finger pointing. >> from a latin bistro to a tea exchange to a hair salon, small business owners across the country are more focused on paying the bills than pondering politics. >> we're paying taxes, we're paying all of these insurance that everything they're adding on to us daily. >> they're struggling in a tough economy as washington debates tax cuts. and to make matters worse, some say, the president is picking a fight with a republican most americans say they barely know. >> mr.r. >> let me be clear to mr. boehner. >> reporter: do americans really care about this finger pointing? a public tit for tat played out on inn the briefing room, on morning news shows, and on twitter. >> people just don't care about all of the in-fighting. >> reporter: to flesh that out sentiment, we sent producers to three cities, orlando, ph

enemies are al qaeda and their allies, who are trying to kill us but have been -- have killed more muslims than just about anybody on earth. you know, we have to make sure that we don't start turning on each other. and i will do everything that i can as long as i am president of the united states to remind the american people that we are one nation under god and we may call that god different names but we remain one nation. >> as you know, he has tried to have this outreach to the muslim world. he is frustrated some of that hasn't worked out because of so much suspicion out there but also interesting that after he said look we are all one nation under god he quickly added, i use my christian faith to get me through as president. no doubt a reference to the fact that he's conscious of the fact there are some of these polls suggesting that some americans think he is muslim. he very clearly slipped that in there amid this conversation about islam. i'm a christian. >> it was also, i thought, the most clear message from the president this go round when he said before i said this clearly, i thou

to beat him, a tea party person who you brought us. >> i really did. i mean, kristin o'donnell was one of our most frequent guests on politically incorrect". people who may not remember it because they're too young or watching johnny carson or something, may not remember that we created people like ann coulter, laura ingram. i could go on with a number of -- >> how did you find them? >> we like to book, you know, i don't know. i drank a lot in those days, larry. we did like to book a lot of female conservatives. they were good press and good for the show. we loved kristin o'donnell. you cannot not like her. she is such a nice person. we have great clip of ben affleck on that show saying please, christine, shut up. because i guess she would just go on. she was known back then as the girl from salt, salt being the saviors alliance for lifting the truth and i guess that's still the schtick she's playing. so part of me for sentimental reasons is rooting for kristin in delaware. the other part is rooting for her because she's going to get her christian ass kicked in the general election. th
